Raking Leafs

Mixing metaphors and casting cliches about hockey and the Maple Leafs for the ether's pleasure since MCMLXVII.

Hip Surgery for Sundin?

Not good, as the words 'Mogilny' and 'degenerative' are mentioned in the article. Of course, that is pure speculation at this point. UPDATE - Actually, this entire post was prompted by speculation and heresay, officially denied by the team and Mats' representation. Lesson learned. Hopefully the condition isn't that bad, Mats takes his time rehabbing and signs a discounted contract for a reduced role on the ice, Scott Gomez becomes a Leaf, and Sundin eventually regains his Conan-like form around March '08. Hopefully.

Carlo Colaiacovo also had surgery to repair a knee injury. Oh yeah, the heated issue of him re-signing is a non-story. Hype really bugs me at times.

    Rule #1: Completely ignore anything that Steve Simmons writes. He is clueless and everything he writes about the Leafs has a severely negative slant to it, whether accurate or not. The guy is a joke and there are definitely better and more reliable sources to get your information from.

    Agreed. I was taking it easy on him today, but I should probably just ignore him altogether.

    I think this was an intentional act of sabotage. It was done by someone inside the Leaf organization that wanted to embarrass Ferguson by making him appear to sign a long-term deal with a "seriously" injured player. My guess is that another power struggle is underway in the Leaf organization and Ferguson may be caught in the middle. Remember in the past Cliff Fletcher, Mike Smith, Ken Dryden and Pat Quinn were all victims of behind the scene executive battles. This might be just another one in development. Stay tuned!
